It's my hobby to draw and throw the disposable tea cups during my daily train journey to Office. Meanwhile one of my friends told me not to throw it; then I began to handover it to others who like it; After some time, I myself began to collect the cups; and now it is displayed here as an installation with some interpretations in the photographs.

Installation as nomenclature for a specific form of art came into use fairly recently; its first use as documented by the OED was in 1969. It was coined in this context in reference to a form of art that had arguably existed since prehistory but was not regarded as a discrete category until the mid-twentieth century. Allan Kaprow used the term “Environment” in 1958 (Kaprow 6) to describe his transformed indoor spaces; this later joined such terms as “project art” and “temporary art.”
Essentially, installation/environmental art takes into account the viewer’s entire sensory experience, rather than floating framed points of focus on a “neutral” wall or displaying isolated objects (literally) on a pedestal. This leaves space and time as its only dimensional constants. This implies dissolution of the line between art and life; Kaprow noted that “if we bypass ‘art’ and take nature itself as a model or point of departure, we may be able to devise a different kind of art… out of the sensory stuff of ordinary life” (Kaprow 12)."
Here I have done some deviations. I have worked on the photographs of my Installations; an interpretation to enhance the dimension of the installation which I think is a success........
